I tested using a touchscreen and compiled both
drivers/input/touchscreen/fsl-imx25-tcq.c and
drivers/mfd/fsl-imx25-tsadc.c
as modules.

I got the crash after running
insmod fsl-imx25-tcq.ko
insmod fsl-imx25-tsadc.ko
rmmod fsl-imx25-tsadc.ko
insmod fsl-imx25-tsadc.ko

irq_find_matching_fwspec() loops over all registered irq domains, I guess the
crash happens inside this loop. The irq domain is still registered from last
time the module was loaded but the pointer to its operations is invalid after
the module was unloaded.

My hope was that removing the irq domain along with module removal would fix
the crash in a proper way.

> Why is this code not required? What's stopping this causing a leak?

Not sure I got your point here.

My assumption is that (at least for platform drivers), the removal function is
called only when the previous probe was successful. platform_get_irq() should
then get us the same irq we got in the probe function and we can remove the
handler and the irq domain.

Needless to say, I'm happy to update and re-test the patch if required.

Best regards,

Martin
